We now know how weak a president Trumpy will be. Congress has him by the nuts.

Fanboys, you're going to love this.

Trumpy has all of his problems with the Russia connections. I don't need to go through those with DU's readers. GOPers want their agenda passed into law. While Trumpy is becoming more vulnerable by the day, he is dependent on GOPers in Congress to block investigations that might lead to his impeachment. GOPers, on the other hand, want Trumpy in office as an easy signatory to their pet bills and want as few distractions as possible before all of the shit hits the fan.

So the GOPers in Congress KNOW that they can get Trumpy to sign anything they place in front of him. It's Grover Norquist's dream president. If Trumpy gets oppositional, a few of those pesky Congresspeople will start splitting from their solid voting bloc and will demand a Trumpy investigation, or join in a contemporaneous one. So the less co-operative Trumpy is with Congressional bills, the more "unhappiness" GOPers will display, and the closer the GOPers will get to impeaching Trumpy.

Trumpy is unbelievably weak. He's compromised by Russia and he can easily be coerced by Congress.

1. I'm not so sure about that

In normal times with a normal president, you might be right. You've forgotten that Orange Caligula is in the White House and that no one has been able to inform him of a single thing or control a single action of his yet

2. But if Trump goes away they've still got Pence,

who would be just as happy to promote their agenda. So there's no real reason for them to be propping up Trump, except maybe because turning against him now would be an admission that they backed a loser in the first place.

3. If this is true, then the whole GOP leadership are traitors...

...and I don't give a shit about parsing the word "treason". Fuck them all. I swear to God, there are times when I'd welcome a military coup. Better them than the Repubs. Letting an asset of a fascist tyrant stay in the White House, so they can destroy the country? A firing squad is too good for them. *Sigh*...yeah, I know. I'm emotional, and may feel a little less bloodthirsty tomorrow morning. But I've fucking had it with these people. Something has to break in this country. It can't go on like this...

4. Trump just tweets and signs autographs all day... he calls them Executive Orders.

He doesn't write them and doesn't even read them. He makes an occasional appearance in front of the cameras and has his picture taken entertaining foreign leaders. Then at night he goes up to his room to watch TV. He is just a rubber stamp and standing excuse for KGOP asshole who want to destroy all the things that made America great.
Thank goodness he will be getting rid of that pesky "Endangered Species Act" this week.

The ONE thing he never does is work.

6. And to the republicans in the House and Senate, that's the beauty of it all.

No debates.

No opposition.

Nothing on record.

Just an edict lacking legislative history.

Fiat.
